Sustainable Building - 2013 AIA Winner: 355 11th Street, San Francisco

Sustainable Building - 2013 AIA Winner: 355 11th Street, San Francisco | Architecture Science Research | Scoop.it

A COTE Top Ten Green Project outperforms expectations and earns more recognition.

Like its surrounding SoMa (South of Market) neighborhood in San Francisco, 355 11th Street is an eye-catching hybrid of old and new. And in the three years since this formerly derelict but National Register–listed plumbing warehouse was renovated into a LEED-NC Gold–certified mixed-use office building and LEED-CI Platinum–certified restaurant, it has become a community magnet.

These attributes, among many others, garnered the project an AIA COTE Top Ten Green Project designation in 2010 and, this year, the inaugural 2013 AIA COTE Plus award.

ParadigmGallery's curator insight, May 22, 2013 6:45 PM

“One of my professors always said, ‘We’re architects. We’re responsible to our community,’ ”....this quote by Joshua Aidlin, AIA, partner at Aidlin Darling Deisgn.  “We can be guides toward responsible development. Clients are usually just dealing with their specific program. If you can open their eyes to opportunities, that’s exciting"

Denver’s Winning Micro-Unit Proposal Has A Vertical Lawn

Denver’s Winning Micro-Unit Proposal Has A Vertical Lawn | Architecture Science Research | Scoop.it

The Mexico-based practice SAC Studio de Arquitectura y Ciudad won first place in the Denver Architectural League’s ideas competition for riverfront micro-housing.


On Friday the Denver Architectural League announced the winners of its micro-housing ideas competition. The contest solicited designs for an eight-unit building with micro-apartments that range from 250 to 375 square feet, sited on a narrow swath of riverbank in a sparse industrial neighborhood on the outskirts of downtown. The league invited architects to imagine a structure so virtuous—net-zero, built on a leftover slope of undesirable land, virtually no parking, etc.—that its inhabitants might just be theoretical figments themselves.

All in all, the competition drew 70 proposals, 25 of which came from abroad. See more at the article link.
